Ontology for Biobanking
The Ontology for Biobanking (OBIB) models the entire life cycle of a biorepository specimen from patient recruitment through specimen collection, specimen processing, and storage. OBIB is an application ontology based on reference ontologies and principles from the OBO Foundry consortium. OBIB is collaboratively developed by investigators at Penn, the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences, Duke, Michigan, and the Medical University of South Carolina. Current efforts include providing terms for the MIABIS 2.0 standards and for representing NCI BBRB Biospecimen Pre-analytical Variables.
